We're going over a barrel, hitting the ramp at 90mph and clearing 10 double-decker buses, and we're not stopping until every last sonofabitch in the place is cheering us on.
Drawing on footage of Evel Knievel jumps, interviews with Niagara Falls daredevils, the speeches of American presidents and transcripts from Chuck Yeager's supersonic flights, Watch Me Fall questions the obsession with those who attempt the impossible, the futility of their attempts and their inevitable fall from grace. With language taken from Mexican wrestling matches, drag races, 100,000 seater stadiums, human cannonballs and daredevil stunts, it is both an epic and intimate piece that explores the relationship between audience and event, the nature of risk and the complicity of the audience in increasingly violent and questionable acts in the name of entertainment.
